our history

Elite Educational Institute was founded by CEO J. Patrick Park in the Southern California in 1987. It was the first company in the world, esp in America, to answer the need of advanced college prep as Elite invented the intensive Summer Boot Camp for the SAT exam. Also known as Elite Prep, our learning centers have served generations to provide solutions to community needs.

In 1989, the Elite Curriculum Division was founded in Los Angeles to create the best and highest quality curriculum for only Elite students. It was the first and still is the only one of its kind. From creating the best and most accurate test prep material in the world, to vetting quality of curriculum and training teachers, the Curriculum team is able to ensure standardized quality across the world.

One of those most powerful resources is the International Consulting Division, to provide strategic guidance on top of local Elite academic services. Elite consulting services have been validated not only by membership to  the most prestigious National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) but also by generations of admission success.

Most recently and most excitingly, since 2015, Elite Open School (EOS) has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as a school private middle and high school of top academic quality and meritorious service.
